Boy, it seems so natural to talk in terms of dichotomies. This post addresses the critical/creative dichotomy as it relates to science and spirituality, the I and we dichotomy, and the subjective and objective dichotomy. What is more difficult is to conduct a continual and complex discourse around issues. It seems the answers will emerge from highly contextualized explanations that shed light on the intricacies of the roles and relationships of all the actors that have an interest in the topic. I know, it's not an answer but the means in which to find "an answer". I'm afraid having it any other way will likely lead to misinterpretation, misunderstandings, and missteps.
Anyone wish to create a context around the importance of spirituality within a highly education system that tends to favor criticality?
